Also fascinating is the fact that many shipwrecks even redefined history, cultures and media (the Titanic for example).
Being that I live in a port city, which once based it's industry on the Danube, growing up I've seen a lot of shipwrecks, some of which were in a state of decay, similar to some of the photos in this post. They were not left there due to an accident, like a rock or iceberg collision, but simply because they became "useless" once the industry went downhill, and they were just left there to rust. Most of them were sold at some point, as scrap metal, and there aren't many left these days.
|Yes, those are trees on a shipwreck. A small island on an abandoned boat. How many years should a shipwreck be left abandoned for something like this to happen? The palm tree left me speechless.|
